ENZYME entry: EC 1.8.2.7

Accepted Name
Thiocyanate desulfurase.
Alternative Name(s)
Thiocyanate dehydrogenase.
Reaction catalysed
Thiocyanate + 2 ferricytochrome c + H(2)O <=> cyanate + sulfur + 2 ferrocytochrome c + 2 H(+)
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, characterized from the haloalkaliphilic sulfur-oxidizing bacterium Thioalkalivibrio paradoxus, contains three copper ions in its active site.
  • It catalyzes the direct conversion of thiocyanate into cyanate and elemental sulfur without involvement of molecular oxygen.
